Lighthouse Christian School is a private christian school in Florida's First Coast area of Jacksonville and Orange Park.
Lighthouse Christian School is designed for the child who sometimes learns differently.
Many Christian Schools use "college prep" programs that are very fast paced.
This type of program can't be concerned about the student who falls behind.
Once a child is labeled as a failure in these programs it can have a very deep, long term, psychological impact on the child.
Many students that enroll with us have been given labels such as SLD (Specific Learning Disability), ADD (Attention Deficit Disorder) and ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder).
Your child may have been labeled as having one of these learning disabilities, but we believe there are learning differences not disabilities.
This type of student needs to learn differently so we teach them using the principles of Multiple Intelligence Theory.
This principle uses smaller classes where the teacher knows each child and recognizes the need to teach differently so the student learns differently.
Most students want to learn and can learn when you match their learning ability with the appropriate presentation and evaluation methods.
At Lighthouse Christian School we use this principle every day, with every student.
With many schools this type of student would only receive a "special diploma," but with our program the majority receive a standard high school diploma.
